Campus Trails

There’s no better respite-and-recharging place than the West Campus woods, which offer a great outdoor life for our community. The woodland trails run virtually the length of the campus along the Oyster River, with a walk from the Conference Center to the West Campus Barn, via the Yale School of Nursing, a jaunt of around 1.5 miles. Bring your comfortable walking shoes!
